I am in W London and pay £4.50/hour, times 2 for 2 children

I am in Croydon and charge £4.00 per hour. This is in line with the other minders in the area.

Hanna - wow, she/he must be raking it in. That is more than I pay in central london for a fully qualified sole charge nanny to look after baby twins! (£8ph).

round here it is around £6ph but that figure is reduced depending on the number of children

goldenoldie, with a childminder you don't pay tax on top - I imagine your £8ph is net.

I note the Daycare Trust has found that childminders are charging more than nannies now because they charge per child, whereas nannies charge per family.
